Motorland Aragón tests: Tom Sykes also sweeps the new Pirelli
Motorland Aragón tests: Tom Sykes also sweeps the new Pirelli

After the corresponding races in the Spanish Superbike Round in which Marco Melandri and Max Biaggi were the protagonists, most of the leading teams have stayed in Aragon to test the new tires that they will use from next season. From 17 "instead of 16.5", Pirelli and Infront Motorsports have decided to take this path since it is the measure present in most street motorcycles, in addition to being used already in the nationals of France or Germany. Having said that, it only remains to underline the new display of Tom Sykes aboard the Kawasaki ZX-10R.

Divided into two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, lasting two hours and 20 minutes each, the drivers were able to complete an average of 30 laps. The system to buy the performance of the current 16.5 "with the 17" consisted of testing the same compound SC1 first in the current measure and then in the new. And the truth is that the result could not have been more positive for Pirelli and the teams present.

Here is a table in which we see the best laps of the first race on Sunday compared to the best of yesterday. As you can see, the performance in some cases is up to a second and a half faster.

Supersport, Broc Parkes sets the best time

Broc parkes

Broc parkes, Ten Kate's pitolus in Supersport, has stopped the timer at 2: 02.452, a time that has been one second away from its main opponents. It seems that the Dutch team has made every effort to ensure that between now and the end of the season the Australian is fighting for victory in each and every one of the remaining Rounds.

Giorgio Barbier, Pirelli's director of the competition area, was in person at the facilities to hear, first-hand, the opinions of his pilots.

Max Biaggi Motorland Aragon

From 2013 it will also be sold directly to the public, having at our disposal the tires used in the championship. The change is common for all nationals except for the British Superbikes guys, who will wait one more season.
